Thank goodness September is over

October 1, 2009

It was with great relief that I turned the page on the calendar this morning because September was chock full with medical appointments and incidents including two trips to hospital for Whale, several follow-up examinations for Bear after his week in the diabetes unit  and umpteen physio sessions for Bear and for me.

The bout of ‘flu – or whatever it was – was over by the weekend although Bear milked the opportunity to stay in bed and be waited on until Monday.  Actually, he is no problem as an invalid – not really demanding  at all. He enjoys his own company, watching DVDs, reading or dozing and hardly ever calls me for anything.

October begins with Bear in the Polyclinic for his second cataract operation and there are several more visits to the opthalmologist for Jay and me as well but the month in general looks much ‘quieter’ until Jay’s friend from America comes to stay from the 29th until the middle of November; something we’re looking forward to very much as it’s several years since we’ve seen her.

Since there’s nothing much else to say here’s a link to some amusing newspaper reports: which I hope will make you smile.
